  1. Double key presses


    Recently I have been getting double keypresses on every key randomly. Not every time do the keys double press, but it seems if the key hasn't been pressed in a while it sometimes double presses. I've tried changing keyboards, didn't work.
    I've tried updating and reverting drivers, didn't work.
    I've tried re-installing the keyboards' software, didn't work
    I've tried cleaning both keyboards, didn't work.

    Double quotes key requires second key press.


    Thanks but the list is so confusing (it only shows non-shifted and none of the formats match (my) actual keyboard physically) and I am not sure if it is a selected Language or keyboard issue. I have now gone with English (United States) w/ UK Extended keyboard and English (United Kingdom) w/United Kingdom Keyboard, apart from five Bulgarian w/various keyboard options. The upshot is that using my Win+shift method of switching, I can never get the double quote back where it appears on the keyboard (it is always swapped with the @) which, in a sense, is fine because I never have to press a second key to get it to display and, as I used to have a 50/50 chance of hitting the correct key (" or @) , so long as I remember they are swapped, I can get it right 100% of the time.

    Booting without press any key

    @dhievm go ahead and list the model number that gives exact specs/info.


    Does it stop right at the Toshiba logo and sit there? Will it sit forever til you press a key, or will it eventually work after so long?

    Double key presses

    Windows 7 makes double when i hit on symbol keys

    Double check the language settings, maybe some strange option is enabled in there that is causing this.
    • Click Start > Run
    • Type intl.cpl, press Enter
    • Click on the Keyboards and Language tab
